A new crate motor? Northstar? What's that like $8000.00?

Topitoff.. I think the junk yard is the way to go if you're on a budget. Being you bought the car at an auction for $2k, I'm assuming you don't have the cash lying around to buy a new engine...

I dont think their that expensive..... A new short block shouldnt be more than 4500.......

A new LONGBLOCK, though, could be 8000 easily........

There are over 100 North Star Engines listed for sale at www.car-parts.com They range in price from $1000 to $3500. I have not seen any North Star engines on ebay, but sometimes cars with bad transmissions or body damage sell for under $1000. One recently sold with a knocking engine and a used replacement engine on a pallet for $950. They are available used.
